Bold illustrations, big flaps, and an ingenious die-cut design invite young
readers to peek at the lives of endangered animals -- and learn how to help. (Ages 4-7)

Did you know that a giant panda likes to do somersaults? That a black rhinoceros can run faster than an Olympic sprinter? That a monarch butterfly flies up to eighty miles a day? All of these animals -- and many more, from tigers to elephants to polar bears, orangutans to dolphins, penguins to sea turtles -- are disappearing, threatened by deforestation,
poaching, fishing nets, global warming, and more. After enjoying the book's eye-catching, dramatic format, kids can follow the simple suggestions offered to help save the animals.
Back matter includes conservation ideas.
